    Technical Help Please

    I'm having trouble with video on FaceBook. Basically it just quit playing video on my PC. I use Chrome as my browser. I have reinstalled Flash and done everything that I can find on Google.


    Before I start a video it will display something similar to this:
    Name:  0208-01.JPG
Views: 248
Size:  40.3 KB


    But I get something like this once the video starts:
    Name:  0208-02.JPG
Views: 256
Size:  31.6 KB


    The audio is fine, just the video is trashed.

    Video works on everything else, youtube, webpage, ect. and will work on FaceBook if I use Internet Explorer.

    Any suggestions?

    Thank You.

    Restore all your defaults in Chrome's settings (top right, 3 dots)

    I don’t think I’ve used IE in a decade.

    IE sucks. Don't do that.

    Uninstall Chrome completely and reinstall the latest version of it.

    Did you disable hardware acceleration within the Facebook settings?

    I'd try downloading Mozilla Firefox and see if it works in there...at least then you can determine whether or not it's a plugin/Flash issue or an explorer issue.
